Students will choose a dinosaur to research and use the information they gather to create a dinosaur trading card.
This Dinosaur Trading Card & Creative Writing Activity includes: • 2-Page Research Printable with Questions • Full Page Dinosaur Trading Card Template • Matching Writing Paper for a Report • Creative Writing Activity to go along with Linda Bailey's picture book "If You Happen to Have a Dinosaur"
(Alternatively, if you don't have access to this book, students can write a journal entry about what it would be like to have a dinosaur as a pet).
All student pages are in black and white for ease of printing.
Sample questions from the research template include: In what period did the dinosaur live? How did the dinosaur defend itself? How did the dinosaur move (two legs, 4 legs, speed)?
This makes a great bulletin board display.
Classroom-tested and aligned with the BC (British Columbia) Grade 2 Science IRP.
